The Place Beyond the Pines reunites Ryan Gosling with his Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance. This trailer does evoke some of the same sadness and loneliness as some of that earlier film. but there’s a gravelly crime element in the mix too. It’s all incredibly noirish.
It’s not a surprise to see Eva Mendes or Ray Liotta in this world but Bradley Cooper might have seemed a touch too shiny. He doesn’t. He’s the odd one out, sure, but that’s what he’s playing.
The rotated shot with the two cops running up with guns is horrendous. Shame about that.
Now, that’s two vehicle stunt-ing crime movies for Gosling now. What an odd coincidence.
What’s hard to tell from this clip is how much of the story deals with the grown up sons, as played by Dane DeHaan and Emory Cohen.
I also don’t know why the video autoplays. Bad Yahoo.
